      For what its worth Fritz lives 2 doors down from me, its my shop in the
      Klondike page on his web site. If global warming ever backs the tide up
      to flood us we have enough small boats in our respective back yards to
      rescue the whole neighborhood.

Looking for something with a bit more free board and the capability to sail. The lassie is a fun boat to build but really only suitable for one small person.
